What's the difference between the first DVD and the Criterion one? More features, better quality?

The Criterion collection release is remastered with a new 5.1 soundtrack. Extras:
Included is the audio commentary by Nolan as found on the 2001 Sony DVD. He discusses production details for the limited feature including use of "parallel narratives". There is also a new 26-minute interview with Nolan (recorded by Criterion in 2010). There is a kind of interesting chronological edit of the full film (1:10:10) with the story events in chronological order. We get a 10-minute side-by-side comparison of the shooting script with three scenes from the film and Doodlebug (1997), a three-minute film by Nolan when attending University College - London, starring Following’s Jeremy Theobald. There are 2 trailers (Theatrical - 1:20, Re-Release - 1:30) and the package contains a liner notes leaflet with an essay by film critic and programmer Scott Foundas.

Yes.
Is it worth the extra 10 bucks, though?

Well considering the features are pretty stacked (especially for a nolan film) plus a new transfer i'd say criterion is easily the way to go.
